Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Twinight, Late 60s. Fair
Beautiful original single of Syl's classic track about racial disenfranchisement. The track's filled with deep deep Chicago soul, and it's a stunning set of haunting guitar-based arrangements that are beyond compare! The flip's a nice original, also written by Syl. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Fantastic Epics

Fun & Funk (parts 2 & 3)
Tories, Early 70s. Fair
This single's floating around in 2 different versions – one with "Fun & Funk part 2", plus another track; and this one, with the rare part 3. Both sides have a very stripped down bubbling funky instrumental groove, with some nice hard drums, and very heavy bass. "Part ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Bethlehem, Late 60s. Fair
Killer stuff from this funky piano combo that sometimes backed up James Brown! James produced this one, and the a-side is a killer instrumental take on his classic "There Was A Time". The cut's got heavy loping piano riffs, and some nice comping by a tight backing band! "Oh Happy ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Bandit, Early 70s. Fair
An excellent harmony soul single by this lost sweet soul group from Chicago! The production and vocals have a real east coast style, with soaring sweet bits, and cool dope soulful arrangements that work beautifully in a Whatnauts/Moments kind of way. 7-inch, Vinyl record
Zodiac, Late 60s. Fair
Beautiful! Chuck Bernard was one of the great unsung heroes of the Chicago soul scene, and this single is one of his finest. "Love Can Slip Away" is a haunting ballad track, with Chuck's raw vocals backed by some sweet harmonies and excellent stepping arrangements. "Bessie ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
